Chocolate Mug cake with Alfa One Rice Bran Oil


Alfa One Rice Bran oil is a versatile nutritionally balanced oil that can be used for all types of cooking.  It is created from bran and germ found in the husks of Thai rice.  This oil has been around for decades in Asian countries.  It has a natural light, clean taste with a mild nutty flavour.  This Rice Bran oil can be used for frying, barbecuing, grilling, stir-fries and non-stick baking.  It has a higher smoking point and lower viscosity so the food cooks fasters and evenly without absorbing a lot of oil, so we can use less oil.  The oil lets other ingredients shine and does not overpower because of its ultra-mild flavour.
The oil contains anti-oxidants, high levels of Vitamin E that helps protect against free-radical damage.
The other qualities of the oil, no trans fats, no cholesterol, lower fat absorption, balanced fat and fewer calorie goodness makes it a heart healthy oil.  The oil has a long shelf life without chemical preservatives.  
This Alfa One Rice Bran oil is #1 in New Zealand, and now available in Canadian stores.  It is sold in 500ml or 1L containers.

There are some delicious recipes in Alfa One Recipe page, I chose this famous Chocolate Mug cake to make by adapting the recipe from the site.
4 tbsp flour
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/8 tsp salt
4 tbsp vanilla flavoured sugar
2 tbsp cocoa
1 egg*
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp Alfa One Rice Bran Oil

Mix the wet ingredients with a fork in a microwave safe mug then add the dry ingredients slowly and mix well.  Place the mug in a microwave safe plate and cook for 1 1/2 to 2 minutes**.  Even if you see the cake rising to the top don't open the microwave.

*The egg can be omitted the cake might be a little more on the brownie fudgy side.
**I put the cake for 2 minutes, after it came out let it cool.  If you microwave too much it will burn.  In most microwaves 1 1/2 to 2 minutes is enough.
